The 1919 anti-colonial revolution is a key moment in modern Egyptian history and a historical reference point in Egyptian culture through the century. This book offers a close reading of a wide range of novels films plays and memoirs that feature this momentous historical event. By examining canonised as well as neglected works Dina Heshmat highlights the processes of remembering and forgetting that have contributed to shaping a dominant imaginary about 1919 in Egypt coined by successive political and cultural elites. Informed by concepts of class and gender this book brings out a number of issues that underlie the memory of 1919 in Egypt as it is constantly evolving by ongoing social cultural and political struggles. As the author seeks to understand how and why so many voices have been relegated to the margins she reinserts elements of the different representations into the dominant narrative. This opens up a new perspective on the legacy of 1919 in Egypt inviting readers to meet the marginalised voices of the revolution and to reconnect with its layered emotional fabric.
